Our dedicated and experienced team at Millbrook
take great pride in producing outstanding wines and superb food for your enjoyment.

Guy Jeffreys

Executive Chef Fogarty Wine Group

Guy had a love of cooking from a young age which inspired him to become a chef and then work in some of WA’s most awarded restaurants, including Leeuwin Estate and Star Anise. But his desire to work in a restaurant that grows its own vegetables led him to Millbrook Winery in 2010.

Guy introduced his no waste, sustainable food ethos, including growing vegetables from seeds that have been saved from the previous year’s crop – cultivating the true paddock-to-plate philosophy. This approach to food has won much acclaim for the restaurant over the past ten years under Guy’s guidance, including a critics choice review in The New York Times, 2 Chef Hats in the Australian Good Food Guide, and West Australian Chef of the Year.

Jamie Hembrow

Head Chef

Jamie joined the Millbrook Restaurant as sous chef before taking on the role of head chef in 2019. Growing up in the English countryside, his cooking style is influenced by his love of European food.

Jamie is passionate about creating dishes from the produce grown in the Millbrook one-acre heirloom garden and orchard, as well as incorporating produce from local artisans. The restaurant menu changes frequently and is a reflection of what is abundant and at its best in the garden, guaranteeing the diner a truly unique experience.

Elliott Neil

Head Gardener

Elliott is responsible for all aspects of the beautiful
Millbrook grounds, vegetable garden, orchard and olive grove. This includes planting and saving seeds, soil preparation, picking of the produce, reticulation and maintenance, plus a whole lot more! Elliott takes great pride in his work and keeps the gardens in top condition. He previously worked as a chef for 13 years, two of those in the Millbrook kitchen, which provided great insight into how the chefs use the estate-grown produce. Elliott only uses organic practices and works with the seasons to help maximise crop yields and reduce any chance of disease.
